Art

Come and take part in a different art activity each day, ranging from card making, painting, fabric art and much more.

We ask that young people bring a top that they don’t mind getting dirty. We will try to keep everything clean however sometimes accidents happen and we don’t want young people to ruin their clothes.

Cooking

Come and learn some amazing cooking skills from our amazing youth workers. Some call us ‘Jamie Oliver’ and ‘Mary Berry’ but we are looking to help young people create their own healthy meals and snacks.

Drop in

A daily drop-in session for young people that provides a safe space for them to come and chat to youth workers and take part in activities.

Young people will have access to activities such as cooking sessions, music production,art workshops, gardening, healthy relationship and lifestyle discussions, fitness and the gym, and more.

Young people also have the chance to speak to youth workers about their problems, college life, friendships, relationships, lifestyle choices, university planning, and more.
